Courtesy of the awesome reaperfox over at doctorwhy.

Having now seen all of Doctor Who (new-who) seasons 1, 2 and 3, I'm prepared to give Torchwood another shot. Even though I still think it's like onscreen slash fanfiction. I didn't quite survive the entire first season last time but now that I actually know Jack's background via Doctor Who, there's a new level to it that wasn't there before. Even though it still plays out like FANGIRLY SLASH FICTION.

Seriously. I have some overly sexualised friends. The graph between me, Joey, Susan, Hammond, Marcie, Elizabeth et al over "who has snogged whom" and "who has slept with whom" would be interestingly tangled, but ye gods, we've got nothing on Torchwood.

If they spent as much time dealing with alien encounters as they did lusting after one another, the Doctor would be out of a... er... volunteer job?

Baahaahaa.... Face of Boe... *ded*

It's true but I still love it! XD

For all the fair to decent (and occasionally bad) episodes of Torchwood, the final story arc of the last season was pretty darn good.

But yeah, I'm starting to think there's something in the drinking water in Cardiff... or they need to add something.

Hey kids, it's chemical castration time! ;D

.... I suspect there's no chemical concentration in the known universe that could ever make a dent in the libido of Capt. Jack.

*dies* Yeah, I've heard Torchwood described as "Doctor Who with porn." I haven't seen any of it yet, though, but I've still got so much of the old Who series' to get through that it may be a while before I get to it.

I love Jack, though. XD <3

I didn't know anything about John Barrowman when I watched him in Who, and then Joe turned on the special features and there was a video diary thing which showed his trailer... with three full grown spaniels living inside... and I'm like "...he's gay, isn't he."

I gave up after watching four episodes of Torchwood because it's just so mind-numbingly boring. The "adult" aspect of the show is more detrimental in my opinion and there's nothing of interest in the stories themselves. Bleh.

I made it through the whole first season and was okay with it until the finale, which I felt was just plain silly and overdone. But fans of Doctor Who have told me that season 2 od Torchwood is dynamite in comparison, so I'm prepared to give it another shot. *fistshake* But this is your last chance, Torchwood! ;)

Oh, and I agree re the adult aspects just being silly. They're tough to avoid around Jack, but I note that Jack was the same Jack in Doctor Who and they never felt the need to venture beyond suggestion. Furthermore, the relationships in Doctor Who, though they never went much further than suggestion (Rose and the Doctor) were a heck of a lot more powerful and meaningful than anything I've seen in Torchwood to date. Dude, the end of Doctor Who season 2?? I CRIED, man!
